What Do Americans Want in Their Ideal Home?

 

  • More than half of all Americans would prefer to buy a new home.
  • Waterfront homes are the most popular with buyers, while properties near golf courses are the least.

That’s according to a poll conducted by Porch.com, which asked both Americans and Europeans to describe their perfect home. About 54 percent of both nationalities state a preference for a new home, and 51 percent think a suburban property is ideal.


Roughly half of Americans and Europeans believe that a waterfront location is perfect for a home, followed by about one-third who want a view of the coast, a city, or hills. The least-popular location is near a golf course, cited by less than 4 percent of both Americans and Europeans.
